Some interesting debate about the whole copyright issue going on...
We were wondering about appending some kind of statement to posts to
back up these points. IANAL, but what do you think of a statement such
"The above post and all elements thereof are copyrighted by the poster,
and may not be reproduced or used for any commercial purpose without
the express permission of the author, unless specified otherwise."
Obviously by posting you have to agree that
a) Other members might quote what you said in *their* posts.
b) It will all end up in the list archives.
Alternatively we could spell out the situation in the list charter and
point to it in the footer to save room.
We'd welcome your comments.
